We are community members of this organic gardening project sponsored by University of North Carolina's Campus Y which brings together students, community members and people temporarily without housing to learn the benefits of growing, preparing and eating locally grown fresh produce. Over the last six years I've met and worked with a wonderful group of students dedicated to using their college experience to benefit the health and well-being of the larger community. Having the experience of planning, maintaining and harvesting on an urban farm teaches skills that will be carried into adult life as they develop into tomorrow's leaders. As members we've gotten to grow a substantial part of our own food needs and shared time and experiences with a wide range of other people.
